Smile New Rider

Hi All,
I'm new to motorcycling and this forum. I'm a new rider and have spent 99.9% of my riding time on my 2009 street glide that a friend and I built. The bike's been an ugly duckling this past riding season because I was still getting everything in order, but I was just happy to be riding. I did a lot of painting in the off season, and hope to be a little more shined up this year. I realize that a very large percentage of touring riders aren't in college, but I'm glad to have the bike I have. I'm also looking at doing some performance upgrades before this riding season while I have my bodywork off the bike. (106" with S&S 570 E.S.)

Video sample of the paint I sprayed:
(don't have anything on the bike yet)
